In addition, we offer interventional radiology which benefits patients with a minimally invasive approach to care with better outcomes and reduced stress on the patient.

Toshiba's Aquilion ONE Dynamic Volume CT System

Commonly referred to as a 320 slice CT, the Aquilon One is a computed technologic device that utilizes 320 ultra-high-resolution detector rows (0.5 mm in width) to image an entire organ in a single gantry rotation. This technology allows physicians to detect and treat life-threatening diseases at their earliest stages since it produces such clear imagery in a short amount of time.

Interventional Radiology

Interventional radiology (IR) is the use of image guidance to perform minimally invasive procedures for diagnostics and treatments. Long Beach Medical Center offers leading interventional radiology procedures and treatments within many specialties.

Interventional radiologists use imaging techniques such as X-rays, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, fluoroscopy, computed tomography (CT) scans and ultrasounds to navigate small instruments, such as catheters and needles, through blood vessels and organs to treat a variety of diseases. Interventional radiology diagnoses and treats patients using the least invasive techniques available to minimize risk to patients and improve health outcomes. Most IR patients are sent home the same day and normal activity is resumed within a week or two.

Benefits of Interventional Radiology

  • Minimally invasive treatment
  • Less blood loss
  • Nearly all procedures are outpatient, meaning patients can go home the same day
  • Less pain and faster recovery time, meaning smaller incisions reducing the risk of infection or other conditions

Radiology Experts

We offer radiological excellence in imaging services, with a team of physicians and technicians who have specialized training and licensure in numerous radiological procedures.

Digital Images

Digital imaging systems, such as Picture Archival Communications System (PACS) and DR Systems, allows radiology images and reports to be examined digitally as soon as they are captured. With this technology, images and reports are available to physicians for viewing right away, either here in the hospital or in the physician's own office. The result for our patients is a timely turnaround of high-quality images, eliminating the need for time-consuming and cumbersome films.

Community-Based Imaging Centers

MemorialCare Imaging Centers (MCIC) offer convenient locations throughout south Los Angeles and Orange Counties. These facilities provide the most advanced imaging technology available in a community-based setting, including 3T Open MRI, 64-slice CT with low-dose technology, PET/CT with TruePoint HD Imaging and other advanced diagnostic imaging services.
